Upcoming events I'm hosting in San Francisco, Mountain View, New York & LA

I'm very excited to be back in the USA for a trip next month. It's been a few years since I was last Stateside and I'm looking forward to seeing friends old and new. As part of the trip, I'm organising and hosting several events with Lloyd Davis from The Tuttle Club and James Tagg, co-founder of Truphone, inventor of the LCD touchscreen and author of 'Are the Androids Dreaming Yet'. The events are all free to attend and I hope you'll be able to join me.

Please follow the links and RSVP for the events you'd like to come to. RSVP is required for each event.

hi_res_logoThe first event is on Monday 2 May 2016  and is a Swedish Beers Party in San Francisco. We'll be at Keeper's Share which is the private bar at Rickhouse Bar at 246 Kearny. The first few drinks are on Truphone and FTI Consulting!

Next there are three talks and discussions going to three different cities. The topic is 'When Will Our Smartphones be Smarter than Us? AI and the Future of Mobile.' James Tagg is our keynote speaker with further guests and speakers at each event.

Our dates and locations are:

Tuesday 3 May 2016 - Mountain View - we're having brunch at Xanh which is near the Caltrain station. We'll be there between 11.30 and 13.30. James will be joined by speakers from FTI Consulting. Brunch is courtesy of Truphone and FTI Consulting.

Thursday 5 May 2016 - New York City - we're at LMHQ with breakfast at 09.30 to 11.30 with our friends from Truphone and Longneck and Thunderfoot.

Monday 9 May 2016 - Los Angeles - we're downtown with our friends at IndieDesk from 18.30 to 21.30. James will be joined by Sam Liang from AI Sense. We'll be serving drinks and snacks.

I'm on the lookout for additional speakers and sponsors, so if you're up for either of those, please get in touch by email.

Well, what a blast Swedish Beers was in Barcelona!

A big thank you to everyone who came and chewed the mobile fat with us in February. Thank you to our sponsors, Gavin and his team at Voluum, Nextbit, aql, Vyke, Veoo, Inspiring Interns, Inspiring Search and Joshua PR. We couldn't have done it without their financial and moral support.

Thank you also to our photographers, Erika Arias, Naty Jamiez and Inspiring Search. And a thank you to Alex and his team at Dostrece who did us proud. They even wrote about us on their blog (it's in Spanish). Here are the photos on Flickr and the same set on Facebook - there are a lot this year. So if you haven't seen them already, enjoy!
